It take dedication as a man of the people to hit working class tang on the side when you probably could be hitting that elitist stuff in the city.

It's in the National Enquirer so it must be true.

the enquirer has broken a few stories, it's not all tabloid. they buy real stuff if they find it. they uncovered jesse jackson's love child, probably the most notable. And they busted OJ on his claim that he didn't own Bruno Magli shoes, they found a picture of him wearing them.

Edwards running around on his wife has not just started being a rumor this week. But I don't see why it's notable since he's a nobody.

This is a new story about him meeting up with her recently in LA.

yeah, i mean, there have been reports about it for a while. i think it was back in 2004 wasn't it? around the same time as there was a rumored Kerry intern scandal.

Gotta direct your outrage somewhere since it must be hard to fall lockstep behind your albatross of a candidate.

I usually don't express 'rage' though Arrested Development references.

Oh yeah, and I don't have a candidate.

At least he had the decency to have it drove all the way down from Santa Barbara to the Beverly Hilton on Wilshire blvd. lmao.

You're right. There I was sitting here feeling sorry for myself, been depressed all day about John McCain. I was thinking about ending it all. Then I remembered how I used to laugh and laugh at John Edwards... ahh, the good old days. Then I look here and lo and behold! He's banging some beat up hide he found sleeping on a park bench! I can laugh again! My life has meaning!

I heard Edwards is banging Madonna. Apparently there's a sex tape floating around. Amazingly, she too bears a strong resemblance to the former candidate.

It must be an easier battle to win than the story over the correct pronunciation of "Pakistan".

Gotta get your shots in somewhere.

from Mickey Kaus' blog


"Get it first, but first get it second." The old Newsweek rule! I hope that's the rule the MSM is following. If so, here's an MSM mention! And here. Business Week is what, chopped liver? And doesn't Jack Shafer count? ... I fear there is a new rule: "We don't want to get it at all. Not even just a mention of the 'allegation.' Not even second." Why? Jon Fine's Business Week piece summarizes some likely reasons. A couple of points:

--Fine notes that "Edwards isn't considered a likely vice-presidential candidate by the press." That's true. But he is a likely Obama cabinet official. Many Dems would like to see him as Attorney-General. That's what's at stake in the love-child coverage. The Enquirer has killed him as a VP candidate. But if the MSM goes into full "protect Elizabeth" mode the damage might yet not quite be enough to stop his confirmation by a Democratic Senate next year. "Protect Elizabeth" = "protect A.G. John."

--If the Enquirer story is true, Edwards didn't just cheat on his sick wife after making a big deal of his loyalty to her in the campaign. He also presided over an elaborate cover-up, involving lies and duplicitous lobbying of the MSM. What is it the CW says about cover-ups? Eliot Spitzer looks like a Boy Scout in comparison.

P.S.: If the MSM can discuss the charges in meta form ("It's so easy to jump to conclusions---and I admit, this looks bad") in blogs, chat rooms, and in press commentaries, why not on the front page in political commentaries? As things stand, here's a rundown of media performance on the John Edwards front:

--The New York Times doesn't tell you what happened yesterday.

--The print edition of the Washington Post doesn't tell you what happened yesterday.

--Newsweek doesn't tell you what happened yesterday.

--Time doesn't tell you what happened yesterday.

--Katie Couric didn't tell you what happened yesterday.

--Brian Williams didn't tell you what happened yesterday.

--Charlie Gibson didn't tell you what happened yesterday.

--RealClearPolitics doesn't tell you what happened yesterday.

--HuffingtonPost doesn't tell you what happened yesterday (and it's their story!). I blame the commenters.

--Mark Halperin doesn't tell you what happened yesterday.

--Mark Ambinder doesn't tell you what happened yesterday.

--One Roger Simon tells you what happened yesterday--but the other Roger Simon doesn't!

Has the gap between what the MSM lets you know and what happened--and what you can easily find out happened--ever been greater? ...

Update: John Tabin argues: "If the account of him being caught in a hotel rendezvous with Rielle Hunter was false, Edwards wouldn't be changing the subject, he'd be suing."

Jim Treacher emails: "Which story gets a bigger audience: A story the blogs run with but the mainstream news ignores, or a story the news runs with but the blogs ignore? I'm thinking the news comes out ahead, but just barely. And at this rate, not for much longer." ...

More: Rielle Hunter just appeared on camera on Extra, talking about what a wonderful man John Edwards is. Not sure this helps him. ... 5:17 P.M. link
